KCL Capital Market Brokers Limited, formerly AIC Capital Market Brokers Limited, has been in operation since October 16, 2003, as a registered securities company regulated by the Securities Exchange Commission of Trinidad & Tobago. On February 1st, 2011 the management team of AIC Capital Market Brokers Limited purchased a 100% ownership interest in the Company. In August 2011 the Company rebranded as KCL Capital Market Brokers Limited, with a redefined mantra “Building generational Wealth”.
The company logo signifies the growth of Generations, like the Sherman Oak tree with each shoot symbolizing continuity.
Our Vision & Philosophy is “to be the premier investment banking entity of the Caribbean Region, recognized for our ability to create generational wealth for our clients, communities, shareholders and staff and respected for our commitment to service quality, corporate citizenship and business ethics”.
We go the extra mile to exceed our client expectations and look forward to the occasions to serve your needs.
The company specializes in the design and distribution of mid-size capital market products and services which are tailored to meet our individual clients’ needs. Since 2005, KCL has developed expertise in the monetization of high grade commercial trade receivables within the region with over TT$2.5 billion in business volume from inception to June 2015. In 2009, KCL expanded its services to the monetization of prime consumer loans and mortgage receivables.
The objective of the program is to provide working capital to owners of prime financial assets in order to improve their cash flow through the sale of these assets, while leaving them in control over all aspects of the client relationship: billings, collections, and other customer service related activities. The essence of the program is the redirection or freeing of existing locked-in cash flows without creating additional leverage. KCL also structures and offers short and medium term funding instruments to meet varied clients’ needs.
Though our focus lends to projects in energy and industrial sectors, we are not limited in our areas of scope provided we can meet the desired need.
Our size does not impede our impact. We have been successful in placement and distribution of short, medium and long term securities within our capital markets both as sole arrangers and through co-advisory engagements locally and regionally. Our stakeholders believe that our ability to achieve great things is accomplished when we work well with others and the benefits are shared. KCL continues to grow its relationships and this continues to positively impact our company and the capital market space within which we operate.
At KCL Capital Market Brokers Limited, we recognize the importance of good corporate governance. Our commitment to the maintenance of the highest standards of transparency influences our decision making structures, processes and controls. Within our governance framework the Board of Directors is responsible for developing the organization’s guiding principles, high level policies, as well as the approval of annual accounts, appointments and remuneration and general strategic direction.
This structure also makes provisions for the establishment of board committees that include an Audit Committee and Risk Management Committee. The Chairman of the Board also serves as an independent lead director that chairs both committees. In addition to the Board Committees, Management Committees (Investment and Asset Liability) comprising key members of the KCL management team also provide operational leadership to the organization.
